The Catalan Institute of Oncology (ICO) and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) have joined forces to expand the HPV Information Centre. The Centre aims to accelerate the development and introduction of human papillomavirus (HPV) prevention strategies to reduce the incidence of cervical cancer and other HPV-related diseases worldwide.

The website provides data on:

  • The burden of HPV-related cancers: cervix, anus, vulva, vagina, penis, oral cavity, and pharynx
  • HPV prevalence and type distribution in women with normal cytology, precancerous cervical lesions and invasive cervical cancer
  • HPV in cancer of the anus, vulva, vagina, penis, and head and neck
  • HPV in men
  • Statistics on factors that contribute to cervical cancer
  • HPV and cervical cancer prevention practices
  • HPV vaccine licensure and introduction
  • Data on immunization coverage and practices
  • Socio-demographic characteristics
  • Sexual behaviour and reproductive health indicators

Data are derived from the systematic review and meta-analysis of published literature and official reports by the WHO, the United Nations, The World Bank, IARC's Globocan 2012 and Cancer Incidence in Five Continents.
